Excerpt from GO SEE ART: “[This image is from] the show…called “Tim Rollins and K.O.S.: A History.” Tim Rollins started what he called the “Art and Knowledge Workshop” in South Bronx, a place known for its poverty and violence, for at-risk kids who called themselves “Kids of Survival” or K.O.S. The idea was to read important literature…and make art from its seeded themes. The film [shown at the show] concerned a specific group of these at-risk kids, who would cycle through as they moved on to (hopefully) bigger and better things. With each book, they would take every page and paste them in order on the canvas. That was almost always the foundation. Tim was rough with the kids in a way that worked. He held them responsible for their own education, an education the he helped them achieve.”
